A recent survey of Staging Diva Graduates reveals that nearly 20% of those who have taken Staging Diva® training have done so after completing other home staging training programs that didn’t meet their needs.
Survey Reveals 20% of Staging Diva Graduates Come from Other Home Staging Training Programs
(United States) June 4, 2009 – Most students completing a training program for a new career in home staging expect that they’ll be able to earn a living from their skills. However, a recent survey reveals that this is often not the case.
Anyone planning to enroll in a home staging training program should know that almost 20% of those who graduate from the Staging Diva® Home Staging Business Training Program took other programs first and turned to Staging Diva after realizing they never really learned how to start their own staging business or how to make money at it.
This comes as no surprise to The Staging Diva® herself, Debra Gould, who says, “I receive countless emails and phone calls from stagers who have taken other training programs but have no idea how to get home staging clients or how to properly charge for their services.” Gould adds, “This is because other training programs focus on the design aspect of becoming a home stager rather than the business side. Staging Diva training focuses on how to run a successful home staging business so that instead of having a home staging hobby, students actually learn how to make money from their talents.”
With everyone watching their expenses in this economy, it’s important to do plenty of research when choosing a training program to avoid the disappointment of not learning the required skills despite making a significant investment of time and money. Unfortunately, it’s often not until a home stager is out there trying to get business that they realize they should have spent more time learning about marketing, pricing and how to properly run a business.
While studying survey results from recent Staging Diva® Graduates, Gould learned that 98% of those surveyed would still choose Staging Diva training if they had to make that choice again. Furthermore, 98.8% of Staging Diva Graduates would recommend Staging Diva® Training to other aspiring home stagers.
“I know the Staging Diva® Program is the most comprehensive and valuable home staging training program on the market, but it’s wonderful to see such positive feedback from our students,” comments Gould who has trained more than 1500 home stagers on 5 continents.
